Interior ministers of Turkey, Iraq and Jordan arrived in Tehran Monday to participate in a two-day meeting of Iraq`s neighbors slated for November 30 as part of efforts to restore security in the war-torn country. The head of the meeting, Ali Asghar Ahmadi, who is Iran`s deputy interior minister for security affairs, stated Sunday that the topics for discussion will be `Iraq`s situation, control of common borders, assistance to Iraqi border guards as well as cooperation among neighboring countries and the Iraqi government`. He said the interior ministers of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt as well as a representative of the UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan will participate in the meeting. The official denied allegations that Iran sought to interfere in Iraq`s internal affairs. Ahmadi further rejected reports about alleged arrest of Iranian nationals for involvement in terrorist activities in Iraq, saying (interrogation of) the arrested suspects has shown that there is no Iranian among them. The official also stressed the need for confronting all terrorist groups in Iraq, including the terrorist Iranian opposition Mujahedin khalq Organization (MKO). "Terrorist groups, including the Munafeqin (Iran`s description of MKO which means hypocrites in Persian and Arabic) grouplet which has taken refuge in Iraq since the era of Saddam Hussein, must not be given chance of any activity in Iraq," Ahmadi said.
